Basic Gardening Tips : How to Start Growing a Garden

November 6, 2019

Okay let’s say you want to start garden and
you have nothing but lawn. The first thing you are going to have to do is get a good
tool and this is the best tool a garden fork. Not a pick fork, it is a good strong fork
that you can really work your way into the ground with. You do that, you step on it,
you push it, you rock it back and forth. Whatever it takes to get the full length of that fork
into the ground. Cause you really need to turn all of this earth. You are going to take
this earth and you are going to turn up all of it and you are going to flip it over. You
are going to do that all the way across. You have to decide how big a area to do. The most
important thing here is not to do anything bigger than you can handle. I would recommend
starting with a area that is no more than say 3-4 feet across and even 3-4 feet long
if you are feeling more adventures you can go longer. But you don’t want to start with
a huge garden cause you will not be able to do this. This is hard work and you need to
start small.

    if your joking than that wasnt a very funny joke at all, and if your serious then most towns/cities have community gardens which you have to pay for but usually not very much

    I have a huge used to be garden in my back yard, I think I can handle turning some dirt, specially since I plan to sell my crops at the local farmers market, my point being, nothing is too hard as long as you put your mind to it.

    Ummm…I'm pretty sure I could turn 100 square feet with a SHOVEL in less than 30 minutes and have it tilled in that much time, too!

    I plan on doing a large area running along a fence in the back yard. I don't want to put too much in there, a few Rose of Sharon, and I want to sparse, I don't want critters. One reason why I want to do this is to make the amount of lawn mowing less.
